Attempt To Remove Snakes Sets Maryland Mansion Ablaze

A Montgomery County, Md. homeowner got more than they bargained for after attempting to smoke out some unwanted pests from their home.

According to county fire investigators, the homeowner attempted to use smoke to control a snake infestation on Nov. 23, but the coals — used as a heat source — got too close to combustible materials, and the Dickerson home went up in flames.

The fire started in the basement of the home, located in the 21000 block of Big Woods Road, and spread through the walls and floors.

Seventy-five firefighters from the area responded to battle the blaze around 10 p.m.

When they arrived, the multi-story home was showing heavy flame and the structure and roof collapsed.
